OpenID gets Verisign support

About a year ago I reported about OpenID as a Open alternative to proprietary stuff like Microsoft Passport (which is again rebranded to Windows Live ID nowadays..)

I didn’t follow up on OpenID lately, but it looks like it’s getting more and more support. Now also Verisign starts supporting OpenID. Looks like those guys do something decent for a change (remember their wildcard dns entries back in 2003).

I’m wondering how far this might lead.
